Ribadu has been officially cut!
Speculations as to the fate of Mallam Nuhu Ribadu as the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) were laid to rest yesterday.
Five months after he was controversially sidelined and ordered to proceed on study leave, Ribadu was yesterday officially replaced as the chairman of the anti-graft agency.
President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua approved the appointment of Mrs. Farida Waziri, a retired Assistant Inspector-General of Police, as EFCC chairman, replacing Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde who had taken over from Ribadu in an acting capacity after Ribadu resumed at the National Institute for Strategic and Policy Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, Plateau State.
Waziri will hold forte in an acting capacity until she is confirmed by the Senate as stipulated in the EFCC Act.
